Monopoly Editions

Original (US) Edition

Original Monopoly was invented in the United States and borrows its street names from Atlantic City, New Jersey*. The stations are also from Atlantic City, although Short Line doesn't really exist. The tax square just before Go is Luxury Tax and carries a $75 penalty.

* The US board has a misspelling (apart from those usual American aberations) which is deliberately perpetuated to this day. The most expensive yellow lot is intended to be Marven Gardens (not Marvin Gardens, as printed on all versions since 1932), and this is how it will be referred to on these pages.
